Abstract:

The study was carried out to investigate the above ground biomass, below ground biomass and estimate the total carbon sequestration of the selected tree species found in Intanki National Park, Nagaland viz., Tetrameles nudiflora, Cyclostemum assamicus, Mansonia dipikae, Dillenia indica, Bischofia javanica, Polyathia cerasoides and Amoora wallichii by non-destructive method. The estimation of the biomass was performed by measuring the tree height and diameter with the help of Ravi altimeter and measuring tape respectively. Total above ground biomass was recorded highest for the Bischofia javanica (7.570 tons tree-1) while the maximum below ground biomass (1.133 ton tree-1) was observed for Mansonia dipikae. The maximum wood moisture content (61%) was recorded for Tetrameles nudiflora. Maximum fixed carbon (62.7%) was recorded in Cyclostemum assamicus while the minimum (38.4%) was recorded for Tetrameles nudiflora. It was also observed that the amount of carbon sequestration was highest (2.977 t C tree-1) in Bischofia javanica and the minimum (0.066 t C tree-1) was recorded for Mansonia dipikae. The trees which were examined are important multipurpose tree species grown in Intanki National Park and are significant components of Agro forestry and plantation forestry in the study region.
